I'm getting the aspire x-alien and it comes w/ a 420w psu. I know that power supplies included w/ cases are often crap and im planning on replacing it but i was curious if it would last at least a few months.

depends. are you gonna oc it? if you're not, then it should last a while. if you do oc it, then you're screwed. buy a different psu. when i mean a while, i mean 6-9 months, depending on how good the rails are. how good the rails are will determine how long you can use it.

REP me if i helped out...idc it's up to you.

look at the reviews. pay attention when they talk about the rails on it. see how much the rails fluctuate, if they barely fluctuate, then you have a good psu. if they fluctuate a lot/ton, don't get it. also, look for how many amps on the +12 volt rail. that rail drives just about everything in your comp. look for as many amps as possible while still getting no fluctuation.
